Shout Out Louds - Bowery Ballroom

Jessica, Emily, and I went over to the Bowery Ballroom (my favorite venue in NYC) to see the Shout Out Louds last night. It was problematic from the start. I knew it was going to be a late night and we lost The Gotham Gal, Josh, and Susan before we even left home.

It was a good thing Josh bailed because we had a bad scene with the bouncer who had no interest letting a couple high schoolers into an 18+ show. I don’t get the 18+ thing. It can’t be about drinking because the drinking age is 21 in NYC. After the bad scene, I was able to negotiate our way in, but it wasn’t good.

Even though we didn’t show up until 10:30 to show up, we waited through the second warmup act and the set change. Finally the band came on at 11:15. I knew we weren’t going to see the whole show which is a damn shame.

Because the Shout Out Louds are great fun live. We stayed until 11:45, I got the girls to bed by midnight, and they are going to hate me when I wake them up for school today.

But they walked out of the show singing Impossible with me. That’s what the Shout Out Louds do to you. They make you sing their songs.

Jessica was plotting all the way home about getting into the show tonite at the Music Hall in Williamsburg. If you are looking to see a great band in NYC tonite, you might want to join her and her friends. I wish I could.

Here’s a Baeble Music video of Please Please Please from the Spiegeltent show in NYC this summer. I heard they came on after midnight that night. Ugh.

    I saw them in Boston Wed night and it was the same story. Two opening bands took forever (and were not so solid) and finally Shouts came on and were infectious. Best part was due to World Series there were only 150-200 people there, which must be a downer for them but is awesome when you can stand right in front of the stage with plenty of room.

    That is a great song. I will have to check them out sometime.

    Both political fundraising and donating can prove daunting and time-consuming. Some people have more free time than others; busy political individuals and groups do not have that. Even for the donors who have free time, they face great difficulty finding a reputable donation center. Imagine if the people who had more free time did the fundraising, thereby letting the politicians do their real work. Imagine that they operate a forum where donors cannot only place money where they wish it, but can exchange ideas about their political preferences, influence other donors, and thus have a place to call ‘home’ among the many places that could process donations. Thus we started ET Raise, a company that can offer those solutions like no one else could. Visit: ‘http://www.etraise.com’. ET Raise, where ‘Every Donation Counts’.

    I’m 16 and I want to go see a 18+ show (Los Campesinos!) .. how much negotiating was there involved? I really want to go but I don’t know if I should risk going and not getting in
